Aramids (aromatic polyamides) are synthetic fibers that appeared in the 1960s. They are characterized by excellent heat resistance, very good mechanical properties and great lightness. Among the most commonly used aramids are Kevlar® and Nomex®, owned by Du Pont de Nemours, and Twaron®, owned by Teijin.
Cords and halyards made from aramid fibers are ultra-resistant products with numerous applications in the safety field (sports equipment, automotive accessories, outdoor installations, etc.).
Of natural origin (rubber tree juice), latex or NR (Natural Rubber) is a basic component for the manufacture of gums and rubbers, renowned for its elasticity and resistance. It is possible to manufacture synthetic rubber or synthetic polyisoprene (IR or Isoprene Rubber) by polymerization. The resulting component is hypoallergenic and has the same properties as natural latex.
In the textile world, there are many other types of elastomers, manufactured by synthesis, such as elastane or spandex, registered under the brand name Lycra® and owned by Invista.

Glass yarn cords can withstand very high temperatures (up to 500°C), are resistant to abrasion and tearing, and are insensitive to chemicals. They are often used for the manufacture of insulation braid or industrial cord.
Made from volcanic rocks, melted in blast furnaces, basalt fiber is an ultra-resistant material, able to withstand a temperature range of -260°C to 815°C. It is inert, and also resistant to UV and chemical products.
Its exceptional physical properties make it a material of choice for industry; it is used in particular for the realization of sheaths of insulation of piping, and for the insulation of the pipes of automobile exhausts.
Polyamide or nylon fiber is a synthetic compound. It is a robust material: waterproof, resistant to chemical attacks and mechanical stresses, and heat resistant. It is often mixed with natural fibers to improve the strength of the textile.
Ideal for outdoor use, polyamide is a preferred material for the manufacture of halyards, paracord, bungee cords, nets and high tenacity webbing.
Made from recycled fishing nets and polyamide textile waste, Econyl® meets the criteria of sustainable development, and offers a wide range of colors, for physical properties identical to the original nylon.
Polypropylene is a plastic polymer invented in 1954. It is strong, UV and chemical resistant. It is also hydrophobic, so it can be used to make waterproof items.
Its strength makes it the material of choice for the manufacture of halyards, ropes and webbing for outdoor and industrial use.
This synthetic fiber appeared more than 60 years ago and is the most used in the textile industry. Indeed, it presents particularly interesting properties: lightness, resistance to breakage, resistance to UV, waterproofness… The recycled polyester comes from 100% treatment of PET (polyethylene terephthalate) of plastic bottles, by a mechanical process, without using chemicals.
Created in 1946, Lurex® (property of Sildorex) is a polyester blade covered with a metallic film. It is used to create shiny braids for high fashion and luxury decoration.
HT Polyester (High Tenacity), particularly resistant, is used for the manufacture of bungee cords, lashing straps and ropes for sports and outdoor activities.
PEEK (polyetheretherketone) is a polymer created in 1978 by Imperial Chemical Industries. It is a thermoplastic material that has exceptional performance in terms of resistance to temperature variations (from -40°C to 250°C) and chemical resistance. It is often used in combination with other fibers, such as carbon fiber.
xPEEK is mainly used as a sheath for optical fibers and cables used in aeronautics and aerospace.
Polyethylene (PE) is a chemically inert, cold-resistant vinyl polymer used primarily in the manufacture of plastic bags and packaging.
Ultra-resistant materials such as Dyneema® created by DSM, belonging to the family of ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene (UHMWPE), are used for sports equipment, industrial belts or protective equipment.
Discovered in 1884, viscose, also called artificial silk, is composed of 90% cellulose, derived from wood pulp. It is manufactured by molecular synthesis and comes in many varieties, including rayon and fibranne.
Viscose is a soft and flexible material, which easily absorbs dyes and has a shiny appearance. It resists light and wear.
It has many applications in haberdashery, home decoration, clothing, for designers and DIY enthusiasts.
